Even if you love bright light, the sun's rays sometimes cause a lot of inconvenience. Yes, and the bare windows - it's trite uncomfortable for most people. But if you can pick up beautiful multi-layered curtains or thin translucent curtains in the living room or bedroom, then the kitchen is more difficult.
The optimal solution for any kitchen can be blinds: various and functional, so that they can be easily selected for any design - just look at the photos to find your ideal option!
We bring to your attention nine types, which this year are most often used in the design of modern kitchen interiors.
Sometimes called Venetian, these blinds with parallel slats are considered almost classical.
A variety of sizes and a wide color palette allow you to find a suitable option for each kitchen.
It really is almost universal: even if you have a room with a bay window, such blinds will be all organic and appropriate there. The main thing is to choose the right size of the slats - too large do not fit small windows and vice versa.
If you want something more elegant, order a cloth edging. This is not quite the standard design is good for style Provence or classic edging.
By the way: You can move away from the usual white color. Unusual bright blinds are an excellent choice for the kitchen. The main thing is that they are in harmony with the basic tones of the interior.
Are there two windows in the kitchen? This format will look harmonious and beautiful. Make sure that the fasteners are installed exactly and symmetrically, otherwise the effect will deteriorate.
Interesting reception: Bright color blinds will become the center of attention and the main decoration. Especially if you choose the shades of the general scale, for example, pastel.
If the room has low walls, pay attention to such blinds - they will help to make the room visually higher.
It is not necessary to use lamellas of the same length - a similar semicircle will turn out very elegant and unusual. The transition should be smooth, then the design will be more accurate.
Textural designer blinds at a price will cost you more than store analogues. However, they look much more interesting. It is better to choose them for decorating large windows with balconies, rather than small openings.
Vertical blinds with photo printing are another novelty in the market. Agree, it looks very impressive.
Tip: It will be necessary to abandon small images with an abundance of details. It is much more advantageous to use a large-format photo-picture to be more precise.
In fact, this is not blinds, but curtains - they do not have lamellas, and the window is closed with a cloth cloth, which is rolled up into a roll using a closed lifting system.
However, many attribute them to this category - due to the lifting system. Therefore, we offer to your attention a couple of beautiful window design options with their use.
The easiest way to decorate - monochrome curtains. It is well suited as a window in a small kitchen, and a spacious bay window. Color choose so that it is in harmony with the overall interior.
Bright prints help to dilute the monochrome design of the kitchen. Here the main thing is not to overdo it - drawings in screaming colors are unlikely to make you happy. Rather, in a couple of days they will cause irritation and will have to be spent on new curtains.
You can also combine them with similar in style curtains. Here, too, will have to exercise reasonable care and not forget about harmony. But the gabardine will have to refuse - if they get into the lifting mechanism, there is a risk of breakage of roller blinds.
In light kitchens, translucent curtains look great. They visually increase the space and make it larger. True, a monofaktornoe linen here does not fit - vertical or horizontal stripes will be much more appropriate.
Interesting idea: Such an invoice will be appropriate in the loft-style kitchen. If you like it, but you want to retreat a bit from the usual trinity of metal-concrete bricks, try this option - a very fashionable solution in 2018.
Close in design to the past type, "day-night" have one fundamental difference. In addition to the lifting roll structure, they are equipped with additional fabric blinds, which allow you to adjust the intensity of lighting.
Pay attention to the bright options: they look very stylish in both closed and open positions. True, such a purple color as in the photo, does not fit every kitchen - but picking the perfect shade will not be difficult.
The relief slats in beige tones are also a good solution, especially for a room decorated in classical style. Most likely, this curtain will have to be made to order - but it looks perfect.
Complex façade blinds should not be installed on small windows. But for a large or balcony door - an excellent choice. They cost more than usual, but the result is much more interesting.
By the way, the appearance of the window largely depends on the texture. Glossy, matte, metal, wood ... Take a decision in a balanced way: if the lamellas do not approach the interior, they can simply spoil it.
The last of this series of cassette blinds are distinguished by a flat structure and a prominent lifting system - in rolls it is hidden.
In addition, for them not only fabric is used - thin plastic, aluminum ... The range of options is much wider.
It is very interesting to look texture painting, imitating a pattern on wallpaper. It will take a lot of time to select materials, but if you try, the result will be elegant.
Translucent cassettes made of film are a good choice if you plan to add light to the kitchen. It is better to install them on the bay windows - in a small kitchen, there may be an overabundance of the sun.
For small windows suited bright suede cassettes - not the most standard type of blinds, but, undoubtedly, very curious.
Thin film with a print is a bold solution, requiring an appropriate interior. In addition, we will have to take care of the quality of photo printing. If the image turns out blurry, then you will spoil the whole effect. We recommend ordering photos from a special catalog - so you get beautiful and unusual blinds in the kitchen.
Bright cassettes close to each other shades can also be an excellent accent in the design repair. Here the main thing is to observe harmony in color types - two warm or two cold tones are combined with each other.
At first glance, blinds-isolight does not differ from ordinary horizontal ... Why did we decide to separate them into a separate group? Due to their configuration, they are able to become a real rescue for tiny kitchens, where in the price each square centimeter of space (on how to find an interior for them read here).
Such blinds do not go beyond the window opening and fit snugly to the glass. So, do not take up space, leaving the whole window sill at your disposal. Convenient, is not it?
Add to this a wide range of colors. Not surprisingly, they are popular. Excellent option for the kitchen in the classic interior - isolayt under the wood. Despite the fact that the material is usually plastic, many companies are easy to order imitation of wooden slats.
For a spacious dining room with a large number of windows without window sills, you can pick up blinds in the tone of the wallpaper. An original and stylish solution that will ensure the integrity of the interior. This method is also suitable for decorating bay windows, so do not forget about it if you have a non-standard kitchen.
And of course you can not bypass such a bright design, where lamellas are bought in tone ... of furniture. Agree, looks very peculiar and interesting.
If you need to pick up curtains on a plastic window of an atypical shape, think about blinds-plisse, which are folded accordion.
Bright colors can be chosen for the kitchen in loft style. They will revitalize the interior, serving as a kind of color accent.
A characteristic feature of such a model is the ability to fold not only upwards, but also downwards. Convenient, is not it? Do not be afraid to use this their property.
Widescreen plisse-canvas on a large window is another interesting design find. Especially if you stop on a matte texture and prefer not too dense material - so through it light will shine through the sunlight, making the design more solid.
Is the kitchen on the terrace or large balcony? Or did you buy an apartment with panoramic windows? In this case, the plisse will help create an original interior, highlighting all the advantages of the room.
Having dealt with what types of blinds exist, we suggest to talk about another important parameter that influences your choice - material. We will not touch the fabric - they have been written enough about in the relevant sections of this article.
It is better to study in more detail the three most popular materials, which can often be found in the kitchens of apartments and private houses.
The most common and, at the same time, the cheapest type is plastic. These lamellas weigh a little, they are easy to wash, they differ in a huge number of colors. In addition, they are most often used for photographic printing on blinds.
On the other hand, they are easy to damage. Consider this factor. However, it can not be denied that they look superb.
For a small kitchen, the brightest pleated will be an excellent solution - they attract attention, do not take up much space and are easily regulated.
The combination of plastic and fabric is an excellent example of multifaceted blinds in a modern style, which recently are at the height of fashion. A kind of novelty, unknown five years ago now is very popular! True, for a small kitchen, it is hardly suitable.
Do not forget the classic idea - beige or white lamellas in the appropriate color kitchen.
As already mentioned, nowadays plastic blinds of various types are used more often. However, you do not need to discount aluminum - an easy, but very durable material, easy to care for.
Many are deterred by the outdated idea that in this case they will have to confine themselves to the metallic color scheme. This is far from the case - modern aluminum blinds can be of all colors, so nothing limits your design fantasy.
Wide vertical plates are well suited to any type of room. True, you can not say this about the interior - if you chose a classic metallic, then we advise leaving it for a hi-tech or post-modern style. All the same, classical design means more natural materials.
Another interesting type that is more suitable for a kitchen in a private house (not every apartment has windows of a similar format) - thin long horizontal slats. By the way, with their use the room will seem wider - take this into account when planning.
Expensive, but very impressive option - blinds made of wood or chipboard. They are appropriate not in every interior, but if you can harmoniously fit them, they look simply luxurious.
Modern and environmentally friendly blinds made of bamboo like many. They not only look great, but also comfortable: lightweight and durable, bamboo blinds harmonize with any type of finishing walls. For example, they are ideal for eco-style cuisine.
Classic horizontal blinds are transformed if they are made of quality wood. This method is appropriate for large panoramic windows, and for small windows, such as those shown in this photo.
Vertical multifactural blinds with the use of wood are much more refined than with other materials. But here there are difficulties: it is not easy to find a balance and to make the product seem harmonious. Therefore, it is better to make them to order in a trusted company.
As you can see, the number of variations in the design of the kitchen using blinds is practically unlimited. I'm sure you found something nice to you personally in this collection.
